Project: Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria

Contact Name: Mary Parrish (parrish.m@mail3.wsd.wednet.edu)

School:Wenatchee High School

Date Completed: Spring 2003

Details:

A PowerPoint slide show was used by four students to report on how the use of antibiotic cleaners and soaps are making bacteria more resistant to the antibiotics. The students included a bit of comedy at times, with cartoons and dramatic voices. They concluded that overuse of antibacterials causes bacteria to get "stronger" and human immune systems "weaker" because our bodies aren't fighting bacteria as much since our homes are "too clean".
